Hector "Machito" Camacho Jr.(52-4-28 Ko’s) will enter the ring February 11th at Don Haskins Center on the under-card of El Paso’s "El Nino" Returns headed by local Undefeated Heavyweight David Rodriguez. When Camacho Jr. last fought in El Paso, he defeated former Legendary World Champion Yori Boy Campas. He now looks to face Mexican brawler Juan Astorga (14-5-9 Ko’s). Camacho Jr. commented: “I cannot wait to fight in El Paso again and I promise to bring a show you will not forget. I heard Astorga is promising a knock-out victory, but he better be careful what he wishes for. El Paso is a great and exciting place for Boxing and the fans are second to none.” Brought to you by Zeferino Entertainment in association with Nino Bravo Productions.
